Step Up To Options

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

A put, just like a call, has a few great upsides: you can’t lose more than you spend on the contract, your max profit is unlimited and it is easy to understand when you make money. What makes a put different than a call is that a put makes money when a stock goes down in price; it’s pretty much the opposite of a call in this regard.

The goal of buying a put is to sell when it is ITM, as when it is out of the money, it expires for no profit. To see what happens on the opposite of buying a put, check out 3.5, Selling Puts on Step Up to Options.
